JEAN JACQUES ANNAUD TO DIRECT PERIOD SET TV SERIES ON ALICE GUY, WORLD'S FIRST FEMALE FILMMAKER

'ALICE GUY' TV SERIES
Wild Bunch TV is producing the series
ON WORLD'S 1ST FEMALE FILM MAKER
One of our favourite directors Jean Jacques Annaud (Enemy At The Gates, Name of the Rose, Seven Years in Tibet, Black Gold) will direct a TV series on world's first female director ALICE GUY. As Deadline reports, based on Emmanuelle Gaume’s book ALICE GUY, the series will feature an international cast, and will tell the story of Guy, who between 1896 and 1906 was thought to be the only female director in the world. Guy was an illegitimate, mixed race child, rejected by an abusive and violent father who kidnaps her from her mother, and raised between Chile, Switzerland and France. At the dawn of the 20th century, amid the hustle and bustle of the emerging art form that is cinema, she became the world’s first woman to direct movies.

  1. This sounds interesting, specially since she grew up in my country, and my city of Valparaiso. I went looking for info on her, but I didn't find any bio that stated she was of mixed race as you state in your post. What does mixed race mean? Was one of her parents Black or Asian?

    1. Judging from her photo above she wasn't, but I bet they will go for diversity as it is so modern these days. They do say she is now fully forgotten.

  3. These are the kinds of women our girls need to hear more about. Even with her rough start in life, she was able to carve out her own space in the world and make a name for herself.

  4. This sounds so very interesting! This poor woman was given every set back possible for her time, yet she was still successful. This speaks volumes and is the type of empowering entertainment that I would like my daughter to watch.
